Feb.22 (GMM) Michael Schumacher's manager says he does not see a lasting successor to the retired seven time world champion among the current generation of drivers in formula one.
Willi Weber has told Germany's Bild newspaper that not even Lewis Hamilton, revered in the mainstream racing press as the sport's new golden boy, matches up to Schumacher, who retired after the 2006 season."Lewis has many prizes, but no titles," 65-year-old Weber said."He had his chance last year, when he was sitting in the best car, but still Ferrari won the championship."I'm not saying that Hamilton is bad, but Schumacher was in a different world. And that will remain the case."I am sure that in my lifetime we will never witness someone in this sport as great as Michael. Becoming world champion has never been so easy," he added.
